Lionel Messi, Dele Alli, Toni Kroos, Marcelo, Carli Lloyd, Gio Dos Santos star in Pepsi ad

It's not often you get to see Lionel Messi, Dele Alli, Toni Kroos, Marcelo, Carli Lloyd and Gio Dos Santos all playing on the same pitch, but Pepsi have made it happen in their latest Champions League advert.

The stars put their various conflicting club-level allegiances aside to enjoy a riotous kick-around in the street and a few cans of cool, refreshing soda.

Nicely done, but whose going to clear up all that mess? Have you any idea how difficult it's going to be to remove the blue paint stains from cobbles and masonry?

Honestly, we wish Pepsi would think about the consequences before they go letting Messi and his chums run amok on picturesque city streets.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
